My cat Muhammad was flicking through the news pages today on his laptop. Suddenly he let out a loud "tut", followed by an exasperated sigh.
"What's the matter?" I asked.
"Have you read this?" He said, pointing his paw at the screen.
""Divorce, abortion an offence to God, pope says"", I read out aloud. "Hmm, not exactly what a believer in God wants to hear just after they've been through a divorce, is it?"
"Hardly." He said, wagging his tail in annoyance. "I'll never understand why so many of you humans do believe."
"You mean cats never have believed in God?" I asked.
"Of course not." Replied Muhammad, with an indignant flick of his whiskers. "We've always known how we evolved. In fact, it's a never-ending source of amusement to us that humans only discovered evolution 150 years ago, and still many of them don't believe in it."
"Yes, we're not the sharpest pencils on the planet." I admitted. "So what are your thoughts on divorce then?" I asked, returning to the topic.
"Terrible thing." Said Muhammad. "Worse than global warming." He added, with a smile.
